Peas-Carrot Upma

A warm luscious pale white delight for a chilly morning.

I have very fond memories of Upma. There were times when I used to get late for school and mum used to make this upma. Even it it was super hot, I had to gulp it down in full just coz I loved it too much to let go.

You shall need: [Serves 2]

3/4 cup… Rava

1.. Medium Onion [chopped]

1.. Green chilly [finely chopped]

1/4 cup…. Peas

1/4 cup.. Grated carrot [squeeze the liquid from them]

1.5 cup… water

Salt to taste


1 tbsp.. Ghee

1/2 tbsp.. Urad dal

1/4 tsp… Rai/mustard seeds

4-5… curry leaves


  • In a wok, heat the ghee.
  • Add the mustard seeds and urad dal.
  • Add curry leaves once the dal changes color.
  • To this, add the onions and some salt.
  • Let them sweat but make sure they dont get brown.
  • Add the green chillies.
  • To this, add the rava. You may add another tbsp of ghee if you want.
